Cambodia, Indonesia near bottom of world talent index

Reading Time: 1 minute

Cambodia and Indonesia are the Southeast Asian nations among the worst countries in the world for growing, nurturing and retaining talent, according to the latest ranking by one of the world’s largest graduate business schools.

The annual Global Talent Competitiveness Index (GTCI) prepared by INSEAD, a business school with campuses across the globe, assesses a population’s level of vocational and technical skills.

The ranking includes Southeast Asian countries except Brunei, Myanmar and Laos. The results: Singapore, ranking second, was beaten only by Switzerland in the overall list, while Malaysia ranked a solid 28th.

Thailand followed at a distance on rank 73, while Vietnam came 86th and Indonesia 90th. Cambodia was ranked 108th out of 118 countries in the list — sandwiched between Cameroon and Nigeria — and received dire scores across the board.

For vocational and technical skills, Cambodia was ranked the fourth worst in the world. It came in fifth from bottom in “global knowledge skills,” which analyses the knowledge of workers in professional, managerial, or leadership roles that require creativity and problem solving. The country is also ranked 108th on employability, which includes “ease of finding skilled employees” and availability of scientists and engineers.

Indonesia, in turn, has problems with education, particularly on the tertiary level, low mid-level skills and deals with low labour market flexibility.
